Author Quotes

Oh, give me vision to discern the child behind whatever he may do or say, the wise humility to learn from him the while I strive to teach him day by day.

If you should go before me, dear, walk slowly down the ways of death, well worn and wide, for I would want to overtake you quickly and seek the journey’s ending by your side. I would be so forlorn not to descry you down some shining high road when I came; walk slowly, dear, and often look behind you, and pause to hear if someone calls your name.
